Furry Easter Bunny Pillow

Bunnies are everywhere right now and we are getting ready for Easter. The porch has nothing. I have been so excited about decorating inside that the outside has been forgotten.  Just a little vignette is all I wanted and I think it is perfect for the adults and the kids. It was just the right amount of cuteness for some Easter outdoor decor.



I bought some supplies to make a pillow and Easter Decoration.


I love the fuzzy pillows that are all the rage right now. When I saw it I thought it looked like it was the fur of a bunny which led to my idea of making a bunny pillow. The silk flowers I bought had a fuzzy stem too. I decided it would be perfect to bend and make into ears for my pillow. I bent them to shape and wired them together.


I glued the bloom to the pillow for eyes and let the stem ears stick out above.


I found some stuffed pillow tops for mason jars that are used to make pin cushions. I used pipe cleaners for whiskers. Then turned the cushion upside down for the nose and glue it on. 


Last but not least I put a bow tie under the nose and he was complete!


I placed him on the porch swing with the other pillows.


 He has the most precious look on his face.


I placed a plant pot upside down that I decorated with colored ribbon. It looked like an Easter egg. This became his perch.


I found this large pink flower that I attached between the ears of the bunny to shade him from the sun. 



We are ready for the Easter egg hunt now. The porch is not forgotten anymore. It is a happy seating area to watch when all the kids go search for their goodies. The Easter outdoor decor is already a hit with the neighbors.


So happy spring has finally arrived.

Happy Easter!!

What an ingenious idea for making bunny face on pillow, adorable. So glad you shared your decorations for Spring/Easter.
Just us two old folks today, missed the kids and grandkids hunting eggs out in yard. Miss all the hoopla and fun they had. Sounds like you got to watch the fun of kids from your porch.
Love your standing wood bunny, look on it's face is priceless, so sweet. I was lucky enuf to find a Mr/Mrs. bunny standing tall, they completed my Easter decorations. Had pretty day here so staged most of Easter decorations on front porch for the day. Time to put away tomorrow. Why do holidays have to go by so quickly?
Hope you and yours had wonderful Easter.
